TIP: SAP EM Overdue Monitor Performance Notes

Kinjal, our SAP EM superstar compiled a short list of tips for improving the process of monitor your overdue events in SAP Event Management.

  • You can use /SAPTRX/EE_MONITOR_ADVANCED program instead of /SAPTRX/EE_MONITOR.
    • How to improve performance using /SAPTRX/EE_MONITOR_ADVANCED program.
      1. Use option – Use only Expected Event Date (Make sure that EE MONITOR activity profile is considering only Expected event date to check overdue)
      2. Selection Options – If EE Monitor profile activity is not using either of control, info, system or Event Message then check all the box) For example – IF EE Monitor profile is using control parameter ZEM_PLANT to check expected event PGI for overdue then make sure not to check control parameter box and select rest others.
    • This program will help improve performance substantially as mentioned below:
      1. Event Date From and To:
        • This will reduce the selection of records for a certain date and time to check overdue expected events (TO check overdue in the last 1 hour or 1 day)
      2. Internal Event Code:
        • This will reduce the selection further to event level for which the overdue need to check (If Delivery event handler is having 4 expected events then it will just look for one mentioned in selection criteria)
        • You can schedule parallel EE_MONITOR_PACK jobs based on events to reduce the runtime of the job
      3. Additionally you can perform the steps that I mentioned above to improve performance using program /SAPTRX/EE_MONITOR_ADVANCED.
